Tips for residents on how to help protect their mail:

-- Avoid leaving outgoing mail in your mailbox for pick-up. Use the letter slots inside your post office for your mail, or hand it to a letter carrier.

-- Pick up your mail promptly after delivery. Don't leave it in your mailbox overnight. If you're expecting checks, credit cards, or other negotiable items, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your mail.

-- If you don't receive a check or other valuable mail you're expecting, contact the issuing agency immediately.

-- If you change your address, immediately notify your post office and anyone with whom you do business via the mail.

-- Don't send cash in the mail.

-- Tell your post office when you'll be out of town, so they can hold your mail until you return.

-- Report all suspected mail theft to a postal inspector.

-- Consider starting a neighborhood watch program. By exchanging work and vacation schedules with trusted friends and neighbors, you can watch each other's mailboxes (as well as homes).

-- Consult with your local postmaster for the most up-to-date regulations on mailboxes, including the availability of locked centralized or curbside mailboxes.
